Ukraine's second-ranked player Marta Kostiuk has made it to the semifinals of a major tennis tournament in Stuttgart, Germany, with a prize pool of $800,000. In an incredible three-hour thriller, our compatriot defeated world number three Coco Hauff from the United States.

The rivals spent 2 hours and 49 minutes on the court, and the Ukrainian was stronger in three games – 3:6, 6:4, 7:6 (8:6). During this time, Kostiuk served one ace and converted eight of 21 break points. Marta recorded ten double faults on her serve.

Now in the semifinals, the Ukrainian will play against Czech Marketa Vondroušová. The girls have been drawn twice, but have only played once – last year Marta lost in two sets 2:6, 1:6. And just a month and a half ago, Kostiuk reached the next round of the Indian Wells tournament without a fight.
